In those days, it was a huge step. We were not used to traveling such vast distances let alone being away from home alone. That was a journey that changed his life.
It’s funny how this date has stuck in my mind. It is said that emotion plays a part and triggers memory. Thinking back, it must have been an emotional time for me, being separated from my only sibling for the first time in my life.
I'm sure we all have distant dates of events in our lives that we never forget.
